The research outlined here has the goal of investigating the boundaries and the foundations of the duty to report and collaborate of persons and entities under special obligations who are liable in accordance to Brazil's Anti-Money Laundering Act and the possibilities of criminal liability through omission. The main point is the question of whether persons and entities under special obligations occupy a position of responsibility regarding money laundering (and if so, under which configurations and conditions) when they fail to collaborate with money laundering prevention programs.
